First Parish in Portland

Welcome to First Parish in Portland

First Parish is a historic Meeting House -- the first parish created in Falmouth, Portland's original name.

No matter what your belief or circumstance, we invite you to explore what our congregation might offer you. Whatever your ethnic origin, sexual orientation, religious heritage, or physical abilities, you are welcome here.

First Parish stands at both the historical and the contemporary center of Portland. Our central location, which we embrace proudly, calls us to spiritual witness and public service. We believe there are four essential ingredients necessary for spiritual growth: a commitment to serve and advocate for others, a willingness to accept and give support to one another; an openness to learning and to exploring life’s mysteries and a disciplined spiritual practice of one’s own choosing. We also believe that church and fun are not mutually exclusive.
